    Our Pittsburgh AHS chapter is planning an ensemble and chamber concert on a prominent concert series here and I would love for us to perform Salzedo’s Bolmimerie (for seven harps). But tracking down the score and/or parts has become quite the treasure hunt. If anyone can help, we’d really appreciate it! Thanks!

    Hi Bill, how cool that you are doing Bolmimerie! I am guessing it is no longer in print? (Sad, if so…) Did you check AHS Archives in the International Harp Archives? Perhaps it is one of the pieces that has been scanned for the digital archive project.

    I did a quick google search and it appears you may find it via the Australian Music Centre. A CD was made in 2008. I would contact Alice Giles, a member of the Seven Harp Ensemble that recorded the music.

    It is not available from Curtis unless you get permission from the heirs controlling the estate. But there are copies with those who have performed it, and it may be in the public domain, having been distributed and performed, most likely without a copyright designation. I don’t have this one. Check with John Carrington.
